He's facing eight forty nine years old now. He spent last decade of his life. You know basically behind bars he was in the ecuadorian embassy for six or seven years or something house a longtime faces eighteen charges including a plot to hack computers and conspiracy to obtain and disclose national defense information. He is said to have plotted with defense analyst chelsea manning more reasonably to expose war crimes by the government correct and it wasn't he who hacked any computers. He was simply helping chelsea manning crack password and i mean calling it calling crack s. I find it kinda humorous views. It was like it was basically just like a hash or something like that of of Something or other. And i don't know it was it was it was it was too well. No i know but it was. It was such a week. It's so weak to call at cracking I'm sorry but like okay. Maybe maybe fine. Maybe it was technically somehow illegal. But i just how can it be illegal. If he's not based in the united states. Well the thing is right back to this whole thing where they didn't. He didn't actually attack a server with like random passwords chelsea. Got the file and send it to him right right and so he basically looked up. It was like looking up the password based on hash or something like that. He helped chelsea with whatever she tells. Find out what the what the password would be based on the hash or something like that. Issue was not in within the so posad geographic land mass of the united states at the time he did not breach any security. No within the united states government. But yet it's like. Harvard is like conspiracy to assist hacking or something like that. It was so ridiculous. Yeah he's such a stretch to say that he did you know Nature conspiracy to obtain and disclosed national defense information and a hacking charge of some sort or blacking. Charges mockery with intent to gawk district. Judge vanessa. Bharat sir has reserved judgment.
